takao shiotsuka atelier: garden and sea

takao shiotsuka atelier: garden and sea

the ‘garden and sea’ weekend house by takao shiotsuka atelier sits on a deep lot, which directly faces the sea. the home is wedge shaped, widening out toward the sea. the ground level is designed to maximize use of the garden, which is completely covered in white gravel and enclosed by the lot’s fence, making it feel like a room on its own. the top floor is designed to capitalize on the wide sea vistas. a large window fills the entire wall of the front room which is used for living and dining. furthermore, a glass wall separates the sunroom and kitchen, carrying the view even further.

  • Does anyone know where I can find a detailed plan of this building? I can find plenty of floor plans but none with measurements or even a scale?

  • do you ever wonder why the Japanese are so into minimalist style? I used to think it was a fashionable trend that just became wildly popular. But when you look at most of the major cities, you’ll notice that you are bombarded with colors, advertisements taking up every little free space on a window, neon lights and signs EVERYWHERE. There is stimulation overload over there. No wonder they retreat to these stark white sanctuaries.
